I have this very same thing on my scalp. I contracted it several years ago. When it gets to this stage, I have to go to dermatologist and have them scrape a culture and it usually comes back as staph. They have prescribed me dioxcyclene to help treatment long term. It seems nothing works. Although, I have had some relief with using some of the T-sal shampoo. Another treatment is to put him on a diet and check his worst flare-up times. He could be allergic to milk, yeast or citrus products. It's a long hard road. I've lived with it for almost 20 years. it's gotten to the point that I want to shave my head bald. Sometimes the sun's uv rays or salty ocean helps heal this up. Main thing I gotten good results from is keeping my hair very clean and dry and using peroxide on it. I'm so sorry that this is affecting your baby. God bless you in finding relief for him and a cure. :)
